Cleaning Up Wilmer's Drug Trafficking

Wilmer Police Department, Tuesday June 10, executed a search warrant in the 300 block of Cedar Street resulting in six arrests and recovery of what was believed to be marijuana and crack cocaine. Click Here to view the actual press release.

According to a press release issued Wednesday by the Wilmer Police Department, six suspects were taken into custody on vaious charges as the result of executing a search warrant at a known drug house located in the 300 block of Cedar Street. Three minor children present at the location were referred to TX Child Protective Services. CPS has not yet been able to confirm that they have custodial care of the children, due to privacy issues.

Interestingly, during the search, one of the suspect's cell phone rang and yet another suspect arrived to purchase drugs by bicycle. That suspect was also taken into custody by Wilmer PD officers for public intoxication.

To quote the release, "The Wilmer Police Department is committed to the effort of cleaning up illegal drugs in their city." Readers may recall Mayor Don Hudson's May 22 remarks "to clean up drugs and bootleggers in Wilmer". Click Here to view our previous coverage.
